Facebook, cell phone texting, and other new ways of staying connected have created a lot of opportunities, as well as challenges, for friends today. Lynne has written a book title Friending: Real Relationships in a Virtual World, about friendships in our time, drawing on interviews with dozens of people ages 12-85 about their friendships and the impact of new communication technologies. She discusses friendship patterns today in the light of God's call to be people who show love, drawing on 1 Corinthians 13 and Colossians 3.
Lynne is the author of numerous books and a minister member of Seattle Presbytery. She teaches pastoral theology in New Zealand. Check out her website, www.lynnebaab.com, for information about Friending and her other books.
